Advent calendar: Door Nr.23

Who has not bought all Christmas presents yet: It’s high time! This is why today’s choice in our ARTFLAKES advent calendar – graphic artist Marcio Pontes from Brazil – looks a bit turbulent, too.

“I am interested in color, shapes and light”, the artist living in Sao Paulo writes in his profile at ARTFLAKES. Thus his series “Graphics 2010” mainly consists of geometric elements in blazing colours.

Concerning his artwork he does not focus on artistic depth, he says, but on the visual ways of perceiving his pictures – and indeed they often bring a kind of psychedelic touch with them.

As an example we haven chosen his graphic  “Tic-Tac 1“, which you can buy as poster, canvas print or greeting cards at ARTFLAKES. More artwork of Marcio Pontes is available in his Shop.
